Woman injured in 4-vehicle crash

Landscape truck driver cited for inattentive driving

Express Staff Writer

A 22-year-old Ketchum woman was treated and released at St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center following a four-vehicle, chain-reaction accident Thursday afternoon in south Ketchum.

The Ketchum Police Department identified the victim as Victoria Lynn Lindermann. She was taken to the hospital by a Ketchum Fire Department ambulance.


The accident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. on state Highway 75 near the Lift Tower Lodge.

Ketchum Police Chief Steve Harkins said the crash involved four vehicles, all of them northbound on the highway.

He said Rachel Ann Carley Caroline, 27, of Ketchum, driving a white Nissan Murano, was stopped in traffic to make a left-hand turn into the lodge when a Webb Landscape truck rear-ended a white Jeep Liberty, driven by Lindermann, that was stopped for Caroline. The Lindermann vehicle then hit a Ketchum Fire Department Suburban, driven by Assistant Fire Chief Robbie Englehart, which in turn was pushed into the Caroline vehicle.

Harkins identified the driver of the Webb Landscape truck as Rafael Pena Jr., 42, of Hailey. He said Pena was issued a citation alleging inattentive driving.
